No Recovery Without Handling the Pandemic

As the US economy begins its fractured re-opening, the resurgence of COVID-19 is creating hotspots that necessitate the re-shuttering of local economies. Until the country can get a handle on containing current and future outbreaks, a return to "normal" activity will be out of the question.

The Impact of the Health Crisis on CRE & the Alpha Portfolio

COVID-19 has brought about drastic policy and economic actions, in addition to an unprecedented shift in human behavior. This has yielded rampant uncertainty in all markets, and a historic spike in unemployment. In the midst of this uncertainty, Alpha is well positioned to weather the current downturn, and we intend to maintain a high degree of patience and discipline in the new environment.

2019 Year End Update

Alpha Investing wrapped up 2019 by closing two December deals, one Multifamily property in Colton California, and two Senior Living facilities in Ohio and California. While the past decade has been one of sustained growth, the economic landscape in 2019, and looking ahead to 2020, is a bit more checkered. As we look to navigate this time of uncertainty, Alpha Investing will continue its focus on deals that have strong fundamentals, focused business plans, and knowledgeable, trustworthy Sponsors at the helm.
